Transcript February 1973 BROADSIDE Page 3 INCOME TAX INFORMATION When you finally decide to join the annual face-off with the Internal Revenue Service,don't give up and let it get the best of your hard earned wages. There are three ways to approach the preparation of your return: do it yourself; have a nonprofessional such as Sears or H & R Block do it; or spring the money for a CPA. If you have income only from one employer, are single or married with no dependents and are not buying a house by all means do your own return. Most nonprofessional groups charge a minimum of $5 for these returns and there's no need to pay it. The IRS instructions for simple returns are straightforward. With a more complex return-more than one employer or numerous deductions such as house payments or medical expenses-you may feel you need help. A nonprofessional group would be your best bet. Do not to go to a finance company (ex. Beneficial Finance) that offers tax return services. These rip off places do not require that preparers be trained and do not cross check returns. Furthermore, they are in business primarily to lend money to pay your tax due, if any, or to give you an instant refund at the normal 33% rate of interest. A company like H&R Block trains preparers in the mechanics of returns but offers no training in the philosophy of tax laws. If your return is simple there's no problem but a more complex situation can cause difficulties. For example, medical and legal expenses involved in adopting a child. A tax preparing company that is open 12 months a year will generally stand behind its returns and will be there to make certain errors will be corrected. The company will also pay the penalty on underpayment of the tax; you will be responsible for paying the extra tax due. These companies charge around $5 per schedule so a return with itemized deduction on schedule A and interest and dividend income on Schedule B will run $15. For returns with capital gains, self-emplo/Tient -income, business or moving expenses, sale of a residence, income averaging or any ether extra schedules, go to a CPA firm. You will generally get competent preparers with excellent review of the mechanical and philosophical correctness of the return. And you will pay for it-CPA's charge $25 and up for returns. The nation al firms start around $30, however, for a complex return, it will be worth every penny. When you go to a preparer you should take with you the following: 1) a copy of your 1970 and 1971 returns; 2) your W-2 reports from employers; 3) the 1099 reports from your savings association and any dividend reports from companies you own stock in; 4) every bit of information possible if you have self-employment income; 5) how much money you paid for medical insurance; 6) amount of money paid for medical, dental and opthalmic expenses - including an estimate of mileage put on your personal car or bus fares paid since these costs are also deductible; 7) taxes paid on home or purchase of major items like cars; 8) estimates of money and items contributed to charitable organizations again including mileage; 9) statements from lending organizations as to how much interest you paid in 1972 on home mortgage, car loan, credit card carrying charges and personal loans; 10) miscellaneous expenses such as child care costs, safe deposit box expense for your negotiable securities, uniform cost and maintenance, professional & union dues, the cost of preparing your 1971 tax return and educational expenses-among other things. The March BROADSIDE will have instructions on preparing your own return. If you are interested and have specific questions, call Martha Failing, 668-2474. Answers to these inquiries will be included in the next article. We are required to pay taxes; we are not required to overpay. Martha Failing staff accountant, Schomer & Wallace, CPA's NOW ACTIONS ACROSS COUNTRY CALIFORNIA Los Angeles NOW is presenting the feminist view toward education in weekly, four-minute scripts on the "Alternatives" radio program, produced by Gladys Falken for radio station KMET in Los Angeles. For sample scripts contact: Education Committee, NOW, 8864 West Pico Blvd., Los Angeles, Calif. 90035. Los Angeles NOW also sponsored a recent forum on new solutions to the problems of today's secretaries. Sessions were led by Theodora Wells and Rosalind Loring, authors of Breakthrough: Women Into Management, newly published. COLORADO Denver NOW members recently told representatives of nine area businesses that the companies' credit policies discriminate against women. NOW challenged that many women are unable to establish credit in their own names, but are required to use their married names and also that credit is hard to establish after a woman is divorced. The allegations were not denied, but the representatives indicated their policies are changing. Boulder NOW appealed to the Boulder Valley School Board to end sexual discrimination in vocational education, career counseling and athletics, and asked for a review of sex-role stereotyping in textbooks. The school board agreed to have recommendations drawn up based on the NOW report. Lieut, (j.g.) Judith Ann Neuffer, 24, of Ohio, became the first woman assigned to train as a Navy pilot. "I'm going to give it everything I have," she promised, adding that she would 1 ike to be considered for astronaut duty "if the opportunity came along." Responded Secretary of the Navy John W. Warner: "I would so recommend." The Woman's Center has begun and begun well spiritually, but physically, some things are still lacking, such as enough lamps, ashtrays, kitchen equipment, etc. The Center needs your help. A drive has begun to collect trading stamps so that we may obtain the needed items as painlessly (and as cheaply) as possible. Any variety of stamp will do--pink, yellow, plaid or whatever. If you have a drawer leaking loose trading stamps you just haven't had time to put into books, give them to us. There will be a box at the Center for stamps loose or in books.
